5.0 out of 5 stars Works for BlackBerry 8310, September 29, 2008
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Kingston 8 GB microSDHC Class 4 Flash Memory Card SDC4/8GB (Electronics)
I didn't see any reviews for this product, so I wanted to let you know that the 8GB (7.4GB usable) works on my BlackBerry 8310.

Interestingly, although the BB showed 8GB with the new card, I only saw 4GB (3.2 or 3.4GB usable) when I first connected to my laptop and the computer asked to format the card when I enabled Mass Storage Mode (I used this mode to drag and drop into the BB). I could only see 4GB on my work computer as well.

However, after standalone reformatting the card (to FAT32) on my friends Compaq both of my computers (and phone) now properly see it as an 8GB card. My computer and phone information is below.

laptop: Win XP Pro w/ 4.2.2.12 BB Desktop Manager
work computer: BB desktop manager 4.6.0.12 with win2k pro
phone: curve 8310 with firmware: v4.2.2.170 and AT&T as provider

I'm looking forward to using the expanded storage!

Had the same problem with only seeing 4GB initially, a problem I think caused by the formatting device (my old LG env in my case) writing a partition table with a 4GB partition. Disk Management in XP shows the other 4GB as unallocated space. Apparently XP can't delete partitions on a USB removable drive. Easy solution is to use a disk erase program on the microSD card (need a card reader to mount as a drive in windows) that can erase the whole microsd drive, which can be canceled after a few seconds since it just needs to wipe the partition table. Once wiped, XP (or your portable device) can reformat the whole card (7.4GB usable)...card works beautifully with my new LG VX11000 (env touch).

Thanks for the info! I have the same BB 8310 and needed a mini SD card. Glad to know that this card works on it. Just ordered the card.

The 4GB barrier is the difference between SD and SDHC. An SDHC card can work in SD mode, if OS or SD controller doesn't support it. One easy way to go around it is to use a new-ish external USB reader even if your laptop has an SD slot.
